Ingredients

  • 4 (3 x 1/2 x 1/2-inch) sticks part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • 2 teaspoons commercial pesto
  • 4 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup fat-free tomato-and-basil marinara sauce

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Coat cheese with pesto.
  3. Cut phyllo sheets in half crosswise to form 8 (13 x 9-inch) rectangles. Place 1 phyllo sheet on a cutting board or work surface (cover remaining dough to keep from drying); coat with cooking spray. Place 1 sheet on top of first sheet. Fold in half crosswise to form a 9 x 6 1/2-inch rectangle. Place 1 stick of cheese at center of a short end of rectangle; fold long sides of phyllo over cheese, coat with cooking spray. Starting with the short end, roll up phyllo jelly-roll fashion. Coat with cooking spray. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining phyllo and cheese. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Heat the marinara sauce in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until thoroughly heated. Serve marinara sauce with mozzarella sticks.
